You are invited to join us for Bastille Festival, a celebration of French food and culture in Borough Market this Sunday 13th July 12 – 10pm. Enjoy live music, street performances, family entertainment and the best French food from Borough Market’s finest traders. Vive le France!



Foodies and Francophiles will love the French feast at Borough Market serving culinary delights from crepes to comté. There will be cookery demonstrations in the Market Hall and French bread baking at Bread Ahead. Taste authentic French cuisine at Boro Bistro and cassoulet at Café Brood.



Don’t miss the French cheese and wine masterclass at Vinopolis, whilst Laithwaite’s will be introducing the wine curious to French wine with tastings all day.



Magicians and street performers will entertain throughout the day. In the true spirit of the French revolution there will be a guillotine provided by The London Tombs. Catch a screening of animated French film Belleville Rendezvous on the terrace at The Refinery at 1pm, and the World Cup Final will be shown at 8pm at various locations.



Play the classic French game of pétanque beside Boro Bistro, create a cocarde in red, white and blue, have your face painted, receive 25% ‘Tour de France’ discount at On Your Bike and join the party at the Bal Populaire – live music from a gypsy jazz manouche band to DJs.
